Teladoc is a great tool that allows you to have a virtual doctor's visit via your computer, phone, or tablet for non-emergency situations. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to you and any dependents covered under your medical plan. You can speak with a nationally board-certified physician within 10 minutes of connecting. Your doctor can make a diagnosis, refer you for other care, and even send a prescription to your nearest in-network pharmacy.
Common conditions treated by Teladoc are cold and flu symptoms, bronchitis, allergies, urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, short-term Rx, eye infections (pink eye), and dermatology.
Just register ahead of time following the instructions below, and you'll be able to receive quick, convenient medical care when you need it. Members enrolled pay a lower copay than the normal cost of an office visit. Dermatology has a separate copay.
Starting in 2019, those enrolled in the UHC EPO and PPO plans will have an irresistible copay -- $5 a visit!
